Featuring music by Kitt ( High Fidelity) with a book and lyrics by Yorkey ( Making Tracks), Next to Normal "explores how far two parents will go to keep themselves sane and their world intact," according to show notes. "How does an almost average family navigate today's over-stimulated and over medicated world? In this darkly funny and haunting new musical, one suburban household confronts its past and its future."
The cast and friends celebrated the opening night at Junior's in New York City. Here are some photos from the evening:
